OK, the idna codecs is fixed now too.

BTW, the message from the pre-commit hook is somewhat unhelpful:

svn: 'pre-commit' hook failed with error output:
file /python/branches/py3k-struni/Lib/encodings/idna.py is not 

If possible the message should include info about the nature of the 
problem (tabs, trailing whitespace) and it's location.

Why not simply copy over StrignIO.StringIO?
